    avoid redraw when there's no change
    while i was timing the performance issue, i noticed that there was lots
    of random redrawing going on.
    turns out there were coming from here; if someone presses CTRL/ALT etc
    without pressing anything else, nothing will be inserted, so nothing
    will change. but the code will `break`, go down and do a needless redraw.
    this patch changes it to simply return if the keypress iscntrl()
    also avoid potential UB by casting *buf into an unsigned char.
